My grandma use to have a peonies in her yard. When I was little I always thought it was a silly name for a flower because it sounded kinda like "pee on me". Needless to say I would not give a child the burden of this name.

Beatrice Peony is a beautiful combination <3

Floris Says:


So cute... But it does sound slightly unfortunate. Maybe Peonia? Pronounced the Italian way (so without the pee sound?)

I actually know a little girl named Peony. She pronounces it Pee-OWN-ee. I kind of laughed when I first heard it. This is not an easy name to have.

My favourite flower! Tho wouldn't be brave enough to use Peony on the first spot. But I think it would do great as a middle name.
